Kill Your Darlings Yellow Guess - Suspect
You Will Be Mine - Natasha Preston

I read You Will Be Mine by Natasha Preston to get Suzanne Collins' card. The book has a young woman as the protagonist.

mixed stories
Regency Christmas Wishes - Carla Kelly,Christine Merrill,Janice Preston

Well as snow falls in Ireland Christmas stories are somewhat apt.


The first story is one of a Naval Captain who remembers a woman who nursed him when he fell ill. 10 years later he gets the letter he was waiting for, much of it water damaged, but the gist of the letter is that she says yes.  So he goes to find her and finds that things are more complicated than they seem.  There's a fair bit of miraclous happenings and literal deus ex going on in this but it's not a bad story overall


Her Christmas Temptation by Christine Merrill is an entertaining story of a rake who goes to break an engagement for his beloved cousin and finds that maybe his motives aren't so clear.  I really enjoyed this one.


Awakening his Sleeping Beauty by Janice Preston the Sleeping Beauty metaphor is stretched a little here but the story is good, an opressed heroine finding love and respect is always good.


Overall not bad and quite seasonally based, the last two are set during the 12 days of Christmas.

City of Endless Night
City of Endless Night - Douglas Preston,... City of Endless Night - Douglas Preston,Lincoln Child Well I enjoyed it but not as much as some of the earlier stories. Some parts of the book just couldn't quite hold my attention and I found myself doing other things. The last quarter of the book, the hunter vs the hunted, had the most action and was my favorite part of the book.
I was really looking forward to seeing Constance and Aloysius's relationship play out but alas that storyline was only alotted about one page so that was kind of a let down. Now I have to "patiently" wait for the next book....

slow to start
The Governess's Secret Baby (the Governess Tales, Book 4) - Janice Preston

It took me a while to get into this story but after about half way it flew. It's the story of a girl who gives away her baby, after having it out of wedlock, only to find out where it is and become it's governess. The man who has become the parent for this child is a pretty reclusive scarred man who has issues.

Not a bad read but it took me a long while to finish.

strong heroine
Scandal And Miss Markham (The Beauchamp Betrothals) - Janice Preston

She makes her own decisions and also tells the hero when he's being an ass, excellent, many romance heros need telling that to and this one learns, mostly.


Lord Vernon Beauchamp is looking for his cousin. The mystery brings him to the doors of the Markhams where Thea is anxiously looking for her brother, who went away several days ago and hasn't been heard from since. Now she wants to help Lord Vernon, but he can't see any reason a woman could help him with his mission so she follows him, in boys clothing.  As they hunt for both their missing men they discover an attraction that is distracting them both.


Entertaining.  I liked Thea, even if she was occasionally out of her depth and trying to ignore consequences.
